After all the carry on yesterday with Thames Water and my dashed hopes about the drain being unblocked, I settled down to just do some reading and catching up. Nothing more I could do about the sodding drains so no point worrying. Then you... Read more

In an attempt to sort out the blocked drain I started phoning companies for an idea on prices. First quote £395 + VAT. *gulp* Second company - number out of service. Next up £110 + VAT which sounds better eh? Except that was the call out ch... Read more

Woke up this morning and my head wasn't pounding. Hurrah! Nor are my eyes streaming now. Double hurrah! I'm still coughing and spluttering and chock full of cold but my temperature is almost back to normal. Hip, hip, hurrah! I reckon t... Read more

Woke up this morning still feeling rough. Head pounding, throat sore, eyes and nose streaming. You know the drill. It's a cold, it will pass but in the meantime it's miserable. On the upside I don't think my temperature is so high today - hop... Read more

Were you following the Chess World Championship matches? I kept an eye on the results but didn't actually watch. 12 draws in 'classic' chess matches wouldn't exactly be enthralling viewing. Particularly when the opponents would be playing at ... Read more
